The Deep Spectroscopic High-redshift Mapper (DESHIMA) is a new, wideband spectrometer for the Atacama Submillimeter Telescope Experiment (ASTE). By employing a novel integrated superconducting spectrometer design based on the microwave kinetic inductance detector (MKID) technology, DESHIMA can instantaneously cover a wide instantaneous bandwidth. The primary goal of DESHIMA is to rapidly measure the redshift of dusty star-forming galaxies in the early universe.


DESHIMA is developed by a collaboration of the following groups in the Netherlands and Japan.
